McCall signs new deal with Bantams

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Stuart McCall extended his contract with City yesterday and said he hoped the club would be in the Championship by the end of his new deal Stuart McCall extended his contract with City yesterday and said he hoped the club would be in the Championship by the end of his new deal

Stuart McCall today put pen to paper on a new City deal and declared: All my managerial ambition lies here.

McCall wants to climb the divisions with the club he has served as player and now boss.

He signed on for another two years – and then set that as a realistic deadline to bring Championship football back to Valley Parade.

McCall said: “I know Julian Rhodes talked earlier in the season about back-to-back promotions. For me, by the end of the contract I’ll have been here four years and I would hope we can reach the Championship by then.

“I want to manage in the Championship but I’d rather do it here in a couple of seasons than somewhere else now. I’m showing loyalty because I want to be here.

I can see myself being here for the long-run, taking us where we all want to go. People know what I feel for Bradford City and I wouldn’t ever think of using this as a stepping stone

Stuart McCall

“If we got promoted and other teams came in, I wouldn’t be looking to go. I don’t want to go.

“Obviously if things don’t go right, I could find myself somewhere else one day. But my managerial ambitions lie with this club. I can see myself being here for the long-run, taking us where we all want to go.

“People know what I feel for Bradford City and I wouldn’t ever think of using this as a stepping stone. I’m also fortunate to have the two chairmen and people I work with and we’ve all got the same belief and feeling for the club.”

McCall’s present contract was due to run out at the end of June. But with a large number of players’ deals up at the same time, sorting out his future now will remove uncertainty with squad negotiations and allow him to plan ahead.

He added: “It’s nice to get it done and shows loyalty from both parties. I was happy to leave it until the summer but it makes sense if the two chairmen are happy to do it now and I’m pleased they’ve acknowledged what I’m doing.

“We haven’t got a crystal ball. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the summer as in which division we will be in.

“But it gives me a chance to plan ahead. There are 15 games left, maybe more, and we’re all focused on what we want to achieve.

“Either way, if we’re successful or not, I know I’ll be focusing on next season.

“Management can be frustrating at times but it’s beneficial for the club to hopefully have that stability and be able to look forward.”

Joint-chairman Lawn said: “Year on year we’ve certainly progressed and you can see that on the pitch with the way we’re playing.

“We decided weeks ago that we were all happy for Stuart to continue. But with Gillingham, Wycombe and Darlington to focus on it wasn’t fair to put him under pressure about this so we decided to talk about it straight afterwards and we’re delighted it’s now done.

“Like myself and Julian, Stuart is a fan as well as being the manager which can make it very difficult if we’re on a bad run. We do feel the pain just as much as the fans, if not more.

“Stuart wanted to carry on but I can understand him talking to his family first. They feel it a lot more, seeing the angst and pain you go through when it’s not going well.

“He wanted to make sure they were happy first and it was right to do that.”

McCall had a meeting with the players yesterday to pick over the results during the second third of the season.

He added: “You look at the back-to-back 0-0s with Chester and Shrewsbury. If we’d taken the wins out of them that we should have done, we’d be sat top of the table now.

“We’ve just drawn a couple too many at home but we’re in a decent position and I feel very happy with the squad we’ve got.”

Can anyone update the fans on the backroom staff. What is the position regarding contracts for Jakes, Wethers et al?

If we are going for continuity and showing loyalty to all parties, where are the contract offers for McCall's backroom? Is there something we don't know?

Should I be surprised that McCall didn't refer to next season as "But it gives US a chance to plan ahead" and "Either way, if we’re successful or not, I know WE'LL be focusing on next season"? Am I reading too much into this as we have heard nothing about contracts for the backroom staff?

i think decisions relating to Jacobs abd other back room staff will be delayed until the end of the season to see where we are then.

Skippy will no doubt tell you he should be out anyway so what does it matter what we all think.

personally i would like to see SM have someone with vast experience aside him but I have said that all along and, before you all yell, yes I accept that this season is beginning to go well which has to be down to more than just the manager.

Fatbloke, no I'm not clueless. I think you may be missing my point. McCall was approached several weeks ago regarding this new deal and he indicated he would like to continue. He even said so on these very pages, but announced he was too busy at the moment to discuss.

Do you not think that as part of that discussion, he will have been asked for his thoughts on the coaching staff and whether he would be looking to keep them on or not? Of course it is Mccall's decision as to who works alongside him. My point is that he will have been asked for his view before today. He has known for a few weeks that he would be signing that contract and in the meantime, I am sure he will have given plenty of thought about the position of his backroom. Does he only speak to the Chairmen once a month? No, he doesn't so I'm sure they know whether McCall will be wanting them to stay or not!

I think Evans must be on his way out then as they haven't announced a new contract for him!!

the bottom line is we will need virtually a new team next year anyway.

There are only a few players on contracts beyond the end of this season and , of those, most are or have been injured.

why changes: if the team does not go up it means the current squad are not good enough and getting a year older: if we do go up does anyone realistically think this team one year on can do the business at a higher level.

Look at Wycombe: by and large the team is several years younger on average than ours:they are signing young players for the future with another couple recently coming out of non league.

I know which scenario I would rather have going into next season: the choice is one which is bonding together from a young age or one that has had to be ripped apart in order to start again.

However, although I have been critical, like Waynus, Of SM and some of his comments and decision making the signing is a good one for the club and the manager himself.

No need for sarcasm.

I will repeat again, McCall verbally agreed a few weeks back to sign a contract for another couple of years. This announcement is because he has actually signed the deal, however, it had already been agreed. My point being that in those few weeks, has Mccall not indicated that he would like his backroom staff to stay and asked the Chairmen to make it happen?

I may have read to much into it and I did end my original post with that exact suggestion, "Am I reading too much into this?"

A simple 'yes you are' would have sufficed instead of calling me clueless and posting a sarcastic riposte.

Excellent news, and hopefully a long way towards building some consistency within the club at last. A manager with ambition in palce for any period of time over a season certainly starts to make the club his own. He had to start by collecting a group of players to start a season, this was proved by our finishing position last year, just a group of players. This time round he had the majority of his backroom in place, there have been subtle (not enough yet by any means) changes in the way we are going about things with the youth set-up, and he has started to build his own squad and not have to make do with cast-offs and left overs from previous managers, the league position pays homage to this. Now he needs to achieve the promotion side of things, it is very possible we do it automatically, more or less certain if we fail for the auto spots that we will get a play-off place and virtually unbelievable we won't have something to be celebrating about at the end of the season, even if that something is only finishing in a play-off place and no more. It has to be better than the last few seasons of failure and misery. And at least we aren't struggling like our whiter than white neighbours, as we progress they seem to regress, what joy. Now see if they can drag the ratdogs with em

I wondered when we would be informed of the results from the scan. If this news is true (and I am not doubting you), it is devastating news. Although Daley hasn't been as good as some claim him to be, he is still a potential match winner. Just missing him from the starting line-up will give other teams a boost.

I was hoping he would be out for no more than 4-6 weeks, but this news could be the difference between getting that 3rd place and not. It should give Jones, Colbeck and hopefully Brandon more impetus to get things right.

Do you not think that as part of that discussion, he will have been asked for his thoughts on the coaching staff and whether he would be looking to keep them on or not? Of course it is Mccall's decision as to who works alongside him. My point is that he will have been asked for his view before today. He has known for a few weeks that he would be signing that contract and in the meantime, I am sure he will have given plenty of thought about the position of his backroom. Does he only speak to the Chairmen once a month? No, he doesn't so I'm sure they know whether McCall will be wanting them to stay or not!
You are such an idiot Waynus. you don't just look at the glass as half empty, you go around the room emptying other peoples' in an attempt to make everyone feel as miserable as you.

how long did it take you think up of a negative slant on this? Why have you gone to such lengths to be miserable?

What you are trying to claim is complete rubbish but what's the point in arguing because you'll just think of something else to be miserable about.

Instead Waynus why don't you tell us why three weeks ago you were on here saying Stuart should be sacked (after Bury). you said this was not a snap judgement, you had considered everything and he had to go...now!

three wins and a draw later and you've gone quiet. does that mean you now back Stuart, if so it shows how stupid your views are and no doubt if we lose tomorrow and against County you'll be starting up your ridiculous demands again. why are you not on here telling us all its a mistake giving stuart a new deal?

Once again - please take some time to think before you speak. you genuinely depress fellow supporters on here and you need to take a look at yourself.

If you read ALL my posts, instead of 'picking the negatives out', you will have seen my answer to your question already!

I haven't commented on McCall being offered a new contract, simply because I have agreed to keep reservation until the end of the season. What did you want me to do, be hypocritical and congratulate the club for giving McCall a new contract despite what I said last month?

I have 'gone quiet' because I was asked to. I will comment on whether I was wrong or not, come the end of the season (As I have said previously)!

As for the above comments, I simply asked why Jakes hadn't been offered a new deal between McCall giving verbal agreement and last night when he signed his deal. Why does that make me miserable?

If you have been on here for the last couple of years, you will know that I am one of our most positive posters. Admittedly, since December, I have posted a few negative comments about McCall but what others have I had a go at?

I agree with Waynus..the contract was verbal and was annouced in time for the buy your ticket before march deadline...all a PR Stunt. It would have been the same with Jacobs had there been an offer on the table. He's on his way!.

I wondered when we would be informed of the results from the scan. If this news is true (and I am not doubting you), it is devastating news. Although Daley hasn't been as good as some claim him to be, he is still a potential match winner. Just missing him from the starting line-up will give other teams a boost. I was hoping he would be out for no more than 4-6 weeks, but this news could be the difference between getting that 3rd place and not. It should give Jones, Colbeck and hopefully Brandon more impetus to get things right.
your're infuriating and i'm starting to think you do it on purpose. You spend ages slagging of Stu (wanting him sacked i believe) and berating Daley (quoting stats etc to get him dropped) then you totally back track. You're statement that if Daley is out we will miss out on 3rd place is unbelieveable and a case in point.

YOU WANTED DALEY OUT OF THE TEAM AND NOW YOU ARE SAYING THAT WE WILL NOT GET IN TOP 3 WITHOUT HIM

yOU ALSO SAID CITY WOULD NOT GET PROMOTED THIS SEASON (ESPECIALLY WITH sTU IN CHARGE) BUT ARE NOW TALKING ABOUT PROMOTION

yes people can change opinions but its usually over time. FICKLE is not strong enough in this case.

please admit you are doing this for a laugh and reaction or go to the doctors because delusion is quite serious and the worsening of symptoms can be delayed or offset

Even if Jakes has been offered and agreed verbally my point was there is no rush to announce it, unlike McGod. I hear Daley out for the season!
I wondered when we would be informed of the results from the scan. If this news is true (and I am not doubting you), it is devastating news. Although Daley hasn't been as good as some claim him to be, he is still a potential match winner. Just missing him from the starting line-up will give other teams a boost. I was hoping he would be out for no more than 4-6 weeks, but this news could be the difference between getting that 3rd place and not. It should give Jones, Colbeck and hopefully Brandon more impetus to get things right.
your're infuriating and i'm starting to think you do it on purpose. You spend ages slagging of Stu (wanting him sacked i believe) and berating Daley (quoting stats etc to get him dropped) then you totally back track. You're statement that if Daley is out we will miss out on 3rd place is unbelieveable and a case in point.

YOU WANTED DALEY OUT OF THE TEAM AND NOW YOU ARE SAYING THAT WE WILL NOT GET IN TOP 3 WITHOUT HIM

yOU ALSO SAID CITY WOULD NOT GET PROMOTED THIS SEASON (ESPECIALLY WITH sTU IN CHARGE) BUT ARE NOW TALKING ABOUT PROMOTION

yes people can change opinions but its usually over time. FICKLE is not strong enough in this case.

please admit you are doing this for a laugh and reaction or go to the doctors because delusion is quite serious and the worsening of symptoms can be delayed or offset
Infuriating, me? Probably, but I thought you knew me by now. I have been sick of hearing about Daley this and Daley that, so I thought if you can't beat em and all that! I don't believe Daley is any likely to help us get 3rd place as Stuart is of getting us auto-promoted.

However, if I had come out and said that, do you think my comments would be supported or shot down?

That said, I have agreed to reserve judgement on McCall and his promotion push until the end of the season.... just for you!
